Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

History of the 11th Panzer Division

The 11th Panzer Division was formed after the fall of France, from the 11th Motorized Brigade, plus the 15th Panzer Regiment taken from the 5th Panzer Division, both of which faought with distinction in France in 1940.

 The 11th Panzer Division first saw action as a unit in April 1941 in the Balkan Campaign.  During Operation Barbarossa, the 11th Panzer Division fought primarily with Army Group South, helping to take Kiev.  It was later transferred to Army Group Center for the assault on Moscow.

 In 1942, the division drove towards Stalingrad, and was used later by FM von Manstein in the relief attempt of the German troops trapped at Stalingrad.  Then, without rest, they were instrumental in stopping the Soviet drive on Rostov in February 1943, helping save Army Group A from being cut off in the Caucasus.

The 11th Panzer Division fought at Kursk in July 1943, and was trapped in the Cherkassy (Korsun) Pocket in February 1944.

The division was sent to the south of France to rebuild after escaping severely depleted from the Cherkassy Pocket. In June it absorbed the 273. Reserve-Panzer-Division. In France, the 11th Panzer Division engaged the French resistance as it rebuilt.  The "gespensterdivision" was moved north In July 1944 to help stem the Allied advance across France.

 The division served with the 7th Army at the Battle of the Bulge, as part of the mobile reserve force.

 The 11th Panzer Division fought against the bridgehead at Remagen, seeking to drive the Americans from this important Rhine crossing.  It was then moved south and thus escaped being trapped in the Ruhr Pocket, and surrendered to the U.S. 3rd Army on May 4, 1945.
